Three keys to maximizing any cutting tool’s effectiveness or in other words, getting the maximum life out of a particular cutting tool are: select the proper tool for each application;make sure that tool is held/driven properly (tool holder integrity); make sure the tool is run at the correct feed rate and RPM for the application.

There are many grinding wheels to choose from on the market and finding the right one for your needs can seem like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Diamond Cutting Tool Care

By Scott A. Ries Posted: 02/18/2013 8:51PM

“Diamond, the hardest substance known to man.” Advertisements touting this quality of diamond are used to represent many different types of products, and in its truest sense, it implies a material that is unequaled in terms of strength and resilience. However, while it is true that diamond is the hardest substance known to man, special care is needed with diamond tools in order to optimize this characteristic.

Ripple Technology Yields Smooth Results

Woodworkers have traditionally pursued productivity improvement by increasing machine speeds and throughput. However, focusing on reduced scrap loss and improved yield has an equally dramatic effect on productivity. Short production runs, in particular, dictate attention to manufacturing every piece perfectly, with as little labor and machine cost as possible. Repair or remanufacturing of even one component erodes already slim margins.

Where Does Your Dust Go?

By Harry S. Guensche Posted: 02/18/2013 3:19PM

Tooling development has made major steps forward in the last 25 years. Manufacturers have come up with sophisticated tool design and cutting materials, as well as improved quality and reliability of tools. These developments greatly expanded options for manufacturers in their choice of workpiece materials; noise levels could be reduced and tool performance was pushed. Tooling producers even researched peripheral areas such as the interface to the machine, which brought new tool holders (e.g. HSK tool holder and hydro sleeves) and spindle designs with accuracy and efficiency never seen before (high precision HF spindle). In their effort to optimize tooling performance, R&D departments widened research beyond the tool to include teams comprised of universities, machine manufacturers, raw material producers and tool users to find solutions for very complex problems like dust extraction.

Don't Chuck CNC Profits
